Do I need to turn my Instant Pot off for a natural release?
You do not need to set your Instant Pot to natural release.
This is something that your pot can do on its own. All YOU have to do is let the float valve go down on its own.
This happens when the Instant Pot inner temperature goes down therefore, reducing the pressure inside.
You can push “cancel” but it doesn’t need to be off. But pressure cooking does need to be finished.
How long does it take for the Instant Pot to natural release?
It can take anywhere from 5-30 minutes or more.
It really depends on the quantity of food in your pot. The more food- the longer it will take.
